Tipster Ryan sends in this hilarious photo. At first glance I thought it answered the age-old question "Streetcar vs. SUV: Who will win?!" but then, looking at it again... is the streetcar off its tracks? This got brutal.
Some lady got her car smashed by the big orange slug. Must have been moving too fast for her to see it. I think that she was fine, but her car was wrecked. I live on the corner of 16th and Lovejoy right by the area that they service the streetcar and change drivers drivers mid-shift. Normally, there is a switchman out there to stop traffic when the cars pull into the garage because they turn across the oncoming lane of traffic. I didn't see the accident but there are two plausible scenarios: 1) There was no switchman, 2) the driver wasn't paying attention because it is so nice outside. My money is on option 2.
